Baby Hands

Usually by Wednesday afternoon our house is a pit.

Because I work Monday through Wednesday I reserve Thursday and Friday for cleaning. So that means I don't do any housework at the beginning of the week.

This may need to change soon because a messy home (and car) stresses me out internally. I think I need to come up with some sort of cleaning schedule to keep me on track so that I don't get so stressed out about it.

All of that to say, due to the fact that I had bunco at my house last night my house was already semi clean. So now I get to enjoy Wednesday through Friday with zero cleaning. Glory hallelujah!

Lately Eli has become very interested in his hands. He will just sit and stare at them for a minute or so. It is the cutest thing, I wish I knew what he was thinking.

Today I put him in his crib and he fussed for a minute (he always has trouble napping on Wednesday afternoons, it is strange) and then it was quiet. I looked at the video monitor assuming he was asleep only to find him staring intently at his hands:

Who needs sleep when you have hands to look at?!?!

Luke had his bible study tonight so it was just Eli and I hanging out at home. He was a bit fussy, I think maybe he is teething. I was trying to entertain him before bed while watching the CMA's, but instead of playing with his toys he was very enthralled in the awards show.
He sat and watched it until the commercial break, then played with his toys and then started watching again after the commercial break. It was hilarious.

So that was our day. Looking forward to another relaxing day tomorrow!
